The Free Land of Gura and Matos is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 277 million Gura and Matosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gura city. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Gura and Matosian economy, worth 9.67 trillion Gāmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 34,919 Gāmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one engages in 'locker room talk' any more, all the playground's a stage for Gura and Matosian schoolchildren, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, and Gura and Matos has designated Gura city as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gura and Matos's national animal is the Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gura and Matos is ranked 31,789th in the world and 103rd in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Drug Use, scoring 100.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
